Dragon fruit grows on the Hylocereus cactus, also known as the Honolulu queen, whose flowers only open at night. The plant is native to southern Mexico and Central America. Today, it is grown all over the world. Dragon fruit may look exotic, but its flavors are similar compared to other fruits. Its taste has been described as a slightly sweet cross between a kiwi and a pear.
Fun Facts about Dragon Fruit:
Dragon fruit is also known as strawberry pear or pitaya.
The best time to pick dragon fruits is when they are mature, as they are at their height of sweetness. Mature fruits that are not harvested will continue to grow larger but not sweeter.
The red-fleshed variety of dragon fruit contains lycopene, the same antioxidant found in tomatoes. Lycopene helps in lowering the risk of cancer, hypertension and heart disease.
